'Historical Programs:
The Holocaust

May 7 and 14
6:00 PM

The Library is honored to present a pair of historical programs from the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center

The Holocaust - Thursday, May 7 at 6:00 PM
This program will provide an introduction into the historical background necessary to understanding the context of the Holocaust. By examining life before the Third Reich, the conditions that led to Hitler’s ascendency to power, and the gradual erosion of all rights for Jews, people will gain a better understanding of the Holocaust and the impact it had all around the world.

A Survivor Speaks: Raye David - Thursday, May 14 at 6:00 PM
The Holocaust is a historical event that the world cannot afford to forget. What people learn from studying about this terrible time needs to be continually applied to the citizens of our world today. Students, in particular, must develop an understanding of the Holocaust beyond mere historical facts.

The Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center provides programs for schools and the greater community that supplement the basic knowledge of Holocaust history and strive to lead individuals to making the world a better place in which to live.
